Rexx Plus manual

looking for the manual, since i'm not able to build a single rexx script.
most the time I get errors like the following:
Code:
RXERR322-D:15:38: MOVE   Source Operand Not aligned.
RXERR325-D:15:38: MOVE   Destination Operand Invalid addressing mode.
RXERR313-W: Compiler did not create 'ram:example.rexx.obj'.
#1) in '99 there was an attempt to free the source code,
but I guess this went nowhere.
Code:
27.3.99 Rexx Plus open source! 
 Donald Dalley: "ICOA has started to solicit for funds to acquire the source
code for the ARexx compiler, Rexx Plus. The idea is to update the program,
and even port it to the new Amiga platform, if possible. It will be re-released
as open source!" For this, the ICOA needs to raise $1500 USD. Email
Donald Dalley if you would be prepared to pledge a donation.
does anyone got any tutorial?
maybe there is a manual on those doc disks?

#1) it does work on WB/Kick 1.3. I've installed Arexx v1.15 (doesnt finish install)
and RexxPlus v1.30.
The gui interface of RP does not open file requester, maybe arp or something missing/wrong.

But I was able to run rexxcompall.rexx from 2nd RPlus disk,
which does build all rexx files given as argument.

it was looking for lib:brexx.lib which does not exists.
so I made a copy of lib:rexxplus.lib and it was using the "new" brexx.lib

#2) tested with some Lightwave arexx macros, and it does work.
no idea about the speed, it's still slow, but it does work

Make an ARexx script a executable binary? Why do you want this?

to make it faster. some of the LW macro calculation are very time consuming.

there is a tiny tool on aminet (ExecRexx), which does the same.
well it does convert to a binary, so it's some sort of protected.

RexxPlus, at least I have the impression, does some optimisation
when building the binary, so it should speed up operations.

Wouldn't it be better to use a compiler language that fit your needs instead of that?

sure, this is the best solution.
But those macros in question were made in the 90s, I only try to make them a bit faster.
rewriting them in C is an option, but thats a bit too difficult and not really worth the trouble
